Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
January 3, 2009
1) There is about a minute cut in the AUD near the end of Lovelight. There are gaps in the AUD between songs.
2) While the primary AUD did not have Me & Bobby McGee, it did have a significantly longer crowd intro and outro than shnid=88816.
3) The right channel of the AUD was low during the last two songs. This was adjusted.

Subject: Rob Bertrando Is God
It just doesn't get much better than this.
Subject: Thanks for this!
I want to thank you for posting this version, this matrix. Listening now to clean tracks of Lesh's manic bass and Kreutzman's intuitive and integrated drums, which the AUD versions compress into less differentiated rumbling and thumps, makes me appreciate the alchemy of that night even more. Added perks like hearing Jerry shout "Bobby!" slightly off-mic as Weir begins his break in Casey Jones, and every nuance of Pigpen's raps in Hard to Handle and Lovelight remind me why I loved the Dead so much in the day.
Subject: The beloved Hard to Handle
This show's known because it was an early-traded AUD (for some of us, our first '71) and today we have a Miller source, a Bertha source, a monster of a Seamons Matrix and more. Why all the love from the source gods? Because it was well-collected? well, this Hard to Handle is so well-known that it was released on Fallout as an AUD! After that the board was discovered in the Houseboat Tapes and most of the show was released on Dick's #35 and Road Trips 1-3. Though overall it's not a Top Ten of '71, there are notable moments. This was in a 4000-seater on Sunset Blvd. They returned a year later for two shows. The 2nd set is consistent but typical '71. The 1st set, though less steady overall, is where the unusual moments lie.
First Set. Actually, average for '71 until the Mr. Charlie, which is different than the way Jer approached it 6 months later, and has a cool tone. Cumberland is hot and the set ends with the much-regarded Hard to Handle, which you've probably heard, and which is letter-perfect. Note that it's actually followed by a stellar version of the oft-generic Casey Jones.
Second Set. An average set for '71 with certain highlights. St. Stephen ends full-stop and then there's a six-minute tuning. Restarting with Truckin'>Drums>The Other One, there's a nifty tranny into M&MU. Back into TOO, Bobby tries riffing his nascent Weather Report, to a negatory Phil. This sequence looks better on paper, though. Just GOGD.
1st Set: B
2nd Set: C+
Overall = 3½ stars
Mr. Charlie - different tone than months later
Cumberland Blues - wonderful
Hard to Handle - a famous version
Casey Jones - has an excitement often missing from technically perfect versions. Try the matrix
SOURCES: The seamons_96668 matrix works best for this show. It's even better in places than the official releases, particularly with Phil (it has little AUD in the mix for an MTX). You especially need it for the Casey Jones and the Loser-SS. Disc 3 of Road Trips 1-3 has Bertha, Mr. Charlie, Cumberland, Brokedown, & Hard to Handle. The second set from The Other One on is on Dicks #35. The AUD of Hard to Handle is on Fallout.
Subject: Wrong info
Subject: Thanks Charlie, Bertha and Hunter!
4 Star show. Excellent Mr. Charlie and TOO>MAMU>TOO - but the great Hard to Handle steals the show. Check out young Jerome just exploding the jam at 4:34 with an even more blistering last minute from 5:54 on. Compare this solo with other great HTH's from the era and see why Jerry has no peers when it comes to "instant invention on an existing theme".
Thanks Jerry, You are the Greatest.
Subject: Not a Road Trips release
Road Trips 1/3 was from CT & Chicago. Be nice if you made this matrix down-loadable..............
